Antarctic Foods Aquitaine
The youngest frozen vegetable company with the richest experience in the world!
Herwig Dejonghe, CEO and owner of ‘Antarctic Foods & Foodies’ with head office in
Belgium (Roeselare) and with a production unit of frozen vegetables in Aquitaine in
the South West of France (Bordeaux/Ychoux), speaks about his ‘re-birth’ in the
frozen vegetable business in the best agricultural area of France.
Herwig Dejonghe, previous CEO of Pinguin from Belgium, bought this state of the art
frozen vegetable factory from the Pinguin group in January 2015.
The new company name ‘Antarctic Foods Aquitaine’ stands for top frozen natural
vegetables from the South of France. The production facility specializes in
supersweet sweetcorn, baby carrots, sliced and diced carrots, green beans and
green peas for the food industry and artisans. Due to the extremely favorable
climate, the farmers in the region Aquitaine offer important quantities of organic vegetables.
